    |dw:1402256259726:dw| since we are looking to the left of 3 you need to just look at the graph in the rectangle i drew around your graph

    the left limit is 2 the question doesn't ask, but do you think you know what the right limit is?

    from what I can tell from your graph you are correct now again the question doesn't ask, but the limit (the actual limit) doesn't exist since the left limit doesn't equal the right limit now you answered 2 to your question because it was indeed just looking for the left limit
